Program Options

INDEPENDENT OPTION

You are responsible for finding a host company to offer you an internship program in one of the approved categories. Once a company is located and the information given to CCUSA, we will contact the company to verify the suitability of the host company. We will review their obligations and determine if the training program meets the appropriate requirements.

CCUSA is required to conduct site visits of host organizations that:

  • Have not previously participated successfully in the sponsor’s program;
  • Have fewer than 25 employees; and
  • Have less than $3 million in annual revenue

If a site visit is required there will be additional fees.  Fees for site visits are determined on a case by case basis and dependent on a variety of factors including but not limited to the location of the host organization and whether CCUSA has a representative nearby to do the visit.  If it is determined a site visit is necessary, CCUSA will notify both you and the host organization of the costs to do such a visit.

You are responsible for making all arrangements with the company offering the internship, including negotiating compensation, if applicable. You are also responsible for accommodation and living expenses. CCUSA will review all agreements as part of the application process.

PLACEMENT OPTION

With the placement option, you would apply for one of CCUSA’s approved internships.  You would submit your CV/Resume, completed application including references along with the placement fee.  If accepted to the program, CCUSA will forward your application to the host company and the host company would set up an interview.  If you are offered the internship, CCUSA would sponsor you and guide the host company in completing the DS-7002 Form (Training Plan) and CCUSA would prepare the consulate packet and assist you in preparing for the consulate interview.
